  1. Hello everyone, first of all I want to say how I love this forum and how many great people are here, I couldn't find a better community. Back on topic I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to fossil preparation, I only prepped some echinoderms, bivalve and some isolated Ictitherium teeth. But after reading and reading topic on this forum I decided to begin a bigger project. I bought an oreodont skull, as you can see from the photos it seems in really good conditions and the matrix seems really soft to work on. At the same time I see that there are many fracture on the skull (pretty normal for these fossils) and so I though that I should consolidate the skull before starting to prep it. Do you agree with me? How should I consolidate it? I read that a great way to consolidate such fossil is brushing them with a 1 to 50 paraloid solution. It this the correct strategy to use? Thank you to anyone who can help me on this task, I 'm so excited to start this project.
  2. For those who know my love of the White River, there will be no surprise here. I was trying to reorganize my collection a bit and had a large portion laid out on the floor. In this photo, I counted roughly 37 Oreodont skulls, I'm wondering if I have a problem. Adding a few additional ones I know of on my prep bench and at other properties, I'm fairly sure I'm north of 50. What fossils do you all collect too many of? If there is such a thing.
  3. ParkerPaleo's White River Prep

    Now that hockey season has ended and the lab is warm again, and perhaps due to my new found extra time in isolation, I am embarking on documenting my prep projects. I thought I would start the prep season off with something easy that should turn out fairly nice. Please welcome my new little friendly Oreodont, Miniochoerus gracilis. It came into my collection in the summer of 2013 and has sat jacketed in a box until today. This evening I concentrated primarily on consolidation and bulk matrix removal with an ARO, and still have a ways to go. The plan is to prepare the "down" side in the hopes of a beautiful orbit and zygomatic arch. I did notice a cross section of vertebrae on the rear of the block so there is probably some neck attached as well. I'm hoping there is enough matrix below the jaws to make a nice pedestal to sit on as well.
  4. Trying to confirm id of two jaw fragments. From an old family collection. Label: Oligocene - White River, Nebraska, Sioux County, USA Both noted as Poebrotherium (tiny extinct camel) First three photos are the first fragment. Based on the large canine tooth and size of the other teeth, I'm thinking it might actually be an oreodont? Last four are the second fragment. Smaller teeth and wider jaw. Maybe labeled correctly as poebrotherium?
  5. Trevor's White River Prep

    Turtle collected by My Friend Zolt. At the white River Badlands at the M&M Ranch Nebraska. This Turtle is missing the Front part and was associated with a Flattend Oreodont Skull. About a foot apart.
  6. Hello everyone,I've recently acquired this piece of unprepped oreodont jaw section and want to do some prep work on it However I've realized that the jaw looks quite fragmented and is afraid that it might break apart into thousands of fragments. I had only prepped a knightia before and I am kinda confused what I should do now.
  7. Type of Oreodont

    Hi all. Please help me identify this Oreodont. Found in White River, Oligocene. Thank you
  8. Hello folks, I started prepping this oreodont skull fossil last year and discovered a bone in it's mouth!!!! I know Oreodonts are herbivores, so, I am assuming it ended up there as a result of shifting mud-etc. But I thought it was interesting and wanted to share my discovery. This project is still in process.
  9. Hi, I've seen several sellers who labeled their Oreodont fossils as Leptauchenia. So I wondered are they the same thing or two different animals altogether? Thanks.
  10. Good day everyone, I'm looking into these two partial mammal skulls: An oreodont Merycoidodon and a Camel Poebrotherium. I'd like some help to find out if these are all real or have been partially fabricated, enhanced, composited, total fakes. Photos 1-4: Merycoidodon culbertsoni Oligocene Nebraska Photos 5-8: Camel Poebrotherium labiatum Brule Formation Oligocene-Whiteriverian Converse County, Wyoming
  11. Oreodont prep

    Thought I would share before and after of an Oreodont skull I prepped out. It still needs some detail work on the teeth. I have reconstructed the 2 upper canines, my first time ever reconstructing any part of a fossil and havent decided if I want to reconstruct the rest of the skull. What do you guys think?
  12. So I'm trying to teach my kids patience and teach them how to prep a skull. So far so good
  13. Unknown Maxilla from Oligocene

    Hey everyone, I was digging in the White River Formation when I found this amazing maxilla of some creature. Through some questioning and conversations with various paleontologists, many people have different opinions of what this is. The responses I’ve had are all different, being Oreodont, Dire Wolf, or a species from the family of Brontotheriidae. The w shaped teeth might suggest Brontotheriidae... What are your guy’s opinions? The maxilla is about 6 inches long.
  14. I'm not a huge fan of large bones but here we go: a glimpse to mammalian fauna of California 7-12 million years ago. Video is from our Christmas break trip to South California/Nevada. My favorite was a rhino tooth.
  15. Oreodont

    I was recently given an Oreodont skull that someone had started but he gave up on it after breaking it into 5 pieces. One of my relatives who knows him was talking about how I’m into fossils and the guy just gives it to him so he gave it to me! So it’s my next project. Even though it’s not in the best shape I’m still excited to get it! I love prepping fossils even though I can only do it on my days off.
  16. Oreodont in situ - Nebraska Oligocene

  17. I finally got around to working on some Oreodont stuff. Last year I stopped by a friends house and bought a bunch of White River material. (my friend is going to stop by this May and bring me a bunch more). I did some work on some Oreodont stuff 20 some years ago and figured it would be fun to work on some more. I will call this skull #1. I realized at once that some of the skull was missing. Not good. I had already opened up this one and took off a bunch of loose rock and then decided to take a photo. You can see the earthquake crack in the rock and this thing was litterally falling apart all over the place. In this picture ive removed all the materail on the right of the crack including upper and lower jaw pieces. I was quite nervous but it was also fun and exciting. At this point ive use up almost an intire 2 oz bottle of super glue to hold the top part of this all together and when I turned it over, very carefully, lots of rock just came off with no prodding or nothing. The good thing was that the upper part held together and you can easily see the lower part of the lower jaws. At this point it was time for a wiskey. Here I glued back on the missing lower teeth. This thing was so fractured and falling apart the nothing really fit like it was supposed to but did the best that i could. Those extra two pieces on the left hand side also need to be glued back together and then both glued back onto the skull. Ok, bottom pieces glued back on and now set aside to cure. Tomorrow is gunna be a fun day. RB
  18. On my wife and my epic fossil trip this fall we spent a day in Nebraska in the White River badlands. Found some of the normal stuff...nothing spectacular but neat for us as we had this as a "bucket list" locality. One of our best finds was an oreodont skull. I found the nose at the bottom of a gully, and worked my way up until I found the outline of the broken bone. I dug out a volleyball-size chunk of rock and brought it home. Just finished prepping it out. It needs some reconstruction of areas around the snout that were weathered away, but all in all I am pleased with how it came out. At camp with a little rough prep to see what we had. Top view while at camp. Packed it away at this point. Underside after reattaching the muzzle.
  19. I'm looking for an unprepped oreodont skull (or skull and partial body) that somebody wants to part with. What do I have to trade? Something more valuable to some collectors than mere fossils, I am willing to trade prep time. No prep too big or too small. Anyone interested?
  20. Watch at 11:30
  21. Hi Everyone, I stumbled across this Oreodont (Leptauchenia) skull that I'm interested in. I don't see any obvious signs of restoration, but wanted to run it by you folks to get some second opinions. Does anyone see any signs of restoration that I may have missed? Thanks as always!
